Upon retiring from the heating and air conditioning corporation as a certified heat and a/c specialist I decided to do a little side thing as a interest and way to bring in some extra money plus our pension.
I decided on repairing portable heating and air conditioning device and window a/c’s. When I first started I didn’t think if it was going to work or not. But blessed for me that it did end up undoubtedly working out. I have our own small little side corporation going. You would be surprised how many people in our local area have complications with their portable space heaters, portable a/cs and on occasion there are those who still use window a/cs for certain rooms and have complications with them too. They all end up coming to me. This isn’t an everyday thing, maybe a few times a month I will get customers. But it is pretty steady. I don’t make much money, only a few hundred bucks here and there. I do not charge high prices because after all, they could undoubtedly go out and buy a modern portable air conditioning idea or portable space oil furnace for cheaper. So the idea was to make it affordable to have it repaired by me rather than going out and buying brand modern portable space furnaces or portable a/cs. It is a nice little side interest in our retirement here and gives me some extra money to take the partner out to a nice dinner once a month!
